I love this angel mold and made several extra full castings the day I made the casting for the Angel Baby card (where I used only a part of the mold). A dear friend that I will be visiting next month has a beautiful guest bathroom done in shades of royal blue with lots of blue glass bottles, jars etc. She is also a collector of Angels.
I purchased this decretive heart shaped bottle several years ago and it will be the perfect hostess gift with the addition of the Angel casting.
- Any of the Arnold Grummer™ paper making kits
- AG Cotton Press Angel casting mold
- Scraps of white paper (think junk mail, etc.)
- Microwave, traditional oven, heat tool or a sunny window
- Blender, cello sponges and soft towels
- Westcott® scissors
- Beacon QuickGrip™ & ZipDry™ Adhesives
- 24” of ½” iridescent royal blue ribbon
- Iridescent glitter
- Pastels, chalks or powdered eye makeup and applicators (tiny still brushes or cotton swabs)
- Tiny bit of dried Baby’s Breath
- Follow the directions found in any of the Arnold Grummer™ paper making kits to create white slurry.
- Create one (or more to use later) of the angle castings.
- Dry the casting in the microwave, a traditional oven, with a heat tool or in a sunny window.
- When the casting is dry, use the chalks to very lightly add color to the angel’s cheeks, mouth, eyes, hair and flowers.
- Apply a thin coat of ZipDry™ adhesive to the angle’s wings and the flowers in her hair.
- Sprinkle the clear iridescent glitter onto the wings and the flowers.
- Set aside to dry.
- Attach the angel casting to the front of the bottle with QuickGrip™ adhesive.
- Use the BowEasy™ to tie a multi loop bow. Attach the bow and a tiny bit of Baby’s Breath to the neck of the bottle.
I will pick up a small bottle of Potpourri oil to add to the gift. I think she will enjoy the gift as much as I did creating it!
